Traffic in Germany: navigating safely through the German traffic jungle

During my previous stays abroad, I have had a wide variety of experiences with traffic rules and have often missed the German traffic regulations - be it in the rice terraces of Yuanyang in China, where there were fewer paved roads than free-roaming pigs, in the outback of Australia, where four-wheel drive suddenly became a vital companion, or on the congested streets of Genoa, where I feared for more than just the life of my car. This made me think about what I would have liked to know about traffic rules before coming to Germany. In this blog post, I will therefore give you a brief overview of road traffic in Germany.
